This week’s CEIMB is Baked Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta Cheese, and was chosen by Pamela at Cookies with Boys. This was a great choice by Pamela as this is a weeknight favorite in our house.

I have actually seen different interpretations of this dish from other sources, including Everyday Foods, but Ellie’s has remained my favorite.

This dish is basically a quick and light tomato sauce that is topped with shrimp, feta cheese, dill, and parsley. I usually serve this over some orzo, which really soaks up the delicious brothy sauce.

I pretty much follow this recipe as written, and I would highly recommend trying it. It is extremely light, and yet always makes for a satisfying dinner. This is a go to weeknight recipe for me because it is very quick to prepare, especially if you buy already peeled and deveined shrimp. If you do choose this kind of shrimp, beware: these shrimp will go bad EVEN FASTER than their shell-on brethren. I recommend using them the same day they are purchased, or at the longest within 24 hours of purchase. The full recipe can be found at Cookies with Boys or on the Food Network website.

Enjoy :p
